  1. In the last James Bond film, the Haitian government passes a minimum wage bill that would put all the workers in the country's textile companies out of business. So the companies hire a mercenary group to overthrow the president and replace him with someone who understands demand and supply. Problem solved, aggressor removed from power, millions of poor workers get to keep their jobs. So why is Bond trying to kill the heroic mercenary who saved the Haitian economy?

      In answer to your question, because the modern James Bond works for the a Social-Democratic British Government that was never subjected to the treatment described in Ernest Bramah's novel.

      that is precisely the plot of "The Secret of The League", only it's 1906 Britain instead of Haiti, and not just bloody mercenaries are used but more civilized actions taken in addition to the inevitable.
