Explanation:
Såvitt jag vet är det detsamma som "doomed to fail" och "destined to fail". Båda ger intressanta träffar hos linguee.com.

neutral  Agneta Pallinder: Inte exakt detsamma - "set up to fail" förutsätter illvilja, någon har satt upp en situation där det är strukturellt omöjligt att lyckas. Kan dock inte komma på ett bättre alternativ för ögonblicket.

  -> I den här kontexten ser jag ingen illvilja, det talas om positiva initiativ. Så din invändning kanske gäller allmänt men inte här?
