Most of the above posts seem to be in conflict with the approach recommended by buildingscience.com and other current sources. A foam approach is ideal in a basement but in any case, you do not want any vapor barrier because it will trap moisture regardless; it cannot dry out past the wall into damp earth and it's on the inside of the warm it cannot dry there. Basements are not the same as upper floors and need a different approach.
