We've heard a great deal about the ongoing Dubai default drama from a horde of different economists and other financial types. Recently, though, KCRW in Los Angeles posted a podcast where it discusses the topic with two prominent architects.
You can download the podcast here (the Dubai part begins at the :33 minute mark).
The interviews provide a good background of the design and development of Dubai. One of the architects describe the theory behind Dubai as "cut and paste urbanism" as well as "ponzi scheme urbanism".
A very interesting listen from a more land planning perspective...
