It depends what you mean by faster,

faster to learn,
faster to build a production quality application in,
faster to start up,
faster to execute
........

each will have a different answer, some quantifiable and some not.
Things like execution will depend on what you are doing, there are some
sites that benchmark languages
eg. http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/
that may help you.

Though depending on what you are doing pure execution speed may or may not
be the most important thing.
