The objective of economic efficiency was understood to imply minimizing the cost of answers, not just the cost of hardware.
[...] A consequent objective was to make programming easier -- not necessarily for trivial problems but for problems worthy of the computer, problems whose coding in machine language would usually be generated automatically by a compiler from statements in the user's language.

-- Frederick Brooks. Planning a Computer System (1962)
