We discuss an original price index formula presented in Białek [2012a] and Białek [2012b]. The inspiration for this discussion are the correlated notes of Prof. Peter von der Lippe. This article presents the author’s point of view on the problems considered by Prof. Peter von der Lippe and some other properties of the discussed formula.
