The author introduces semantic fixes and then considers institutional and spatio-temporal fixes. The analysis relates the author’s previous work on conjunctural analysis, cultural political economy, and social fixes directly to various forms of governance. Institutional and spatio-temporal fixes treat space and time as direct objects of governance, governing the spatio-temporal dimensions of other substantive objects of governance and compensating for the uneven spatio-temporal effects of governance. This facilitates the study of how the inherent contradictions and antagonisms of capitalism are governed through a historically variable set of semantic, institutional, and spatio-temporal fixes. It shows that state power can be analysed as ‘government + governance in the shadow of hierarchy’ and reveals the role of governance and multispatial metagovernance.

Keywords:   Capitalism, Conjunctural analysis, Contradictions, Hegemony, Institutional fix, Multispatial metagovernance, Semantic fix, Spatio-temporal fix, Spatio-temporal governance
