What’s wrong with this? Computers make lousy type designers.
I can quite believe that, but I am not convinced that either Helvetica or Arial could be profitably made narrower. If you want a font that doesn't set as wide as Helvetica (or Arial), why not choose a different font?

The designers of Arial Narrow are given as Nicholas and Saunders, incidentally.
