How can time periods so long be "periods around now". I'm studying English Grammar in Use, and in the first unit, says:
You can use present continuous with today/this week/this year etc.(periods around now)
for example: The company I work for isn't doing so well this year.
First question: can I say => The company I work for isn't doing so well in this year. Difference?
Second question: Consider longer periods. How do you explain this subject that these periods are around now. for example:
Our country isn't doing well this decade!!!
