This paper presents some aspects related to the issues of aggregating economic indicators. Departing from the research of Gh. Păun (1983) we will prove a theorem which states that under certain, natural assumptions, it is impossible to obtain an optimum aggregation. Unlike the original work of Păun, in this paper we are giving a rather simple proof of this theorem.
