The paper consider the articulation of three perspectives: the regulation approach, the neo-Gramscian political school, and the critical discourse analysis, to study the links between the economic and the political in contemporary capitalism, particularly by examining the cultural and social embeddedness of market and state and their discursive, and the ways in which they are articulated both discursively and extra-discursively. These arguments are illustrated substantively by references to changes in the state form that has been centrally associated with Atlantic Fordism. It is shown how deeply regulationist and neo-Gramscian categories rest on assumptions, concepts, and explanatory principles rooted in cultural analysis. Taking into account the critical discourse analysis, it is considered the future of the capitalist economy and the national state, the governance, and its cultural and social embeddedness.
