Default I just don't get the whole 14 ga thing

We had our house rewired when we got it (combo of 1950 cloth romex and knob&tube) the K & T was fine but 2 14ga wires is not enough to run 2 floors of a house including a kitchen. had an electrician buddy put new sevice in and I ran most of the wires I went overboard with the # of circuits but I just don't get the whole skimping on materials thing. It will last for years and if it costs another $100 in material so what? I did not think you could even get 14/2 without ground. WTF
