Pros and Cons of declared types

In my long history of advocating declared types in this talk I want to give survey of the pros and cons of declared types in programming languages. To do this I will provide you with JavaScript and TypeScript snippets that basically do the same thing. Based on that we can discuss if, where and how declared types can make your life easier. If you think I will be strongly biased towards declared types you might be surprised.
